Once again, we are lucky enough to have a video from Dawn Brown Eyes showcasing the gorgeous dream catchers that are being donated for the Run for Life and two Lakota sports teams.
Every donation of $10 is worth one ticket for a chance at the dream catchers. But, you must "play" to win!
The Teams and Events
One Spirit is hosting a Run for Life this year in May, in addition to supporting two sports teams; the Lakota Wild lacrosse team and the Allen Youth baseball team.
For the Run, we will provide tee shirts to all participants, plus healthy snacks to power their performances. Coach Dale Pine is organizing this upcoming event.

We are also supporting the Lakota Wild lacrosse team and the Allen Youth Baseball teams. Both teams will incur travel costs, require uniforms and equipment and of course, hardy meals to replace all those calories expended.

Team sports benefit young people in countless ways- here are but a few:
- friendship and camaraderie
- cooperation and teamwork skills
- leadership skills
- appreciation of different abilities
- respect for team mates/ opponents/officials
- a sense of belonging/team membership
- social interaction skills
- physical skills
- team goal-setting skills
- self-discipline, patience and persistence
- resilience through sharing positive and negative experiences.
